So Thin. So Elegant - Art Experts Say So

I travel to New York at least four times a year on business and I always love to see dogs walking with their owners in the city. In my numerous trips, I've never seen a greyhound on the city streets. I guess I need to track down where the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art's curator of Nineteenth-century, modern and contemporary art, Gary Tinterow, lives. I'm sure it's fabulous - and even more fabulous because he is a greyhound owner.

This piece, posted on The Met's website, is narrated by Mr. Tinterow and shows amazing works of art featuring greyhounds throughout history. As all things at The Met - this three minutes is incredibly fabulous and a must watch for any greyhound historian.

I have to admit, I love that this was produced by The Met. It only solidifies what all greyhound owners know - our dogs are timeless works of art. Enjoy.

It looks like a wonderful exhibit.

When will the "pet owners look like their dogs" thing kick in?

I loved that clip.

I'm finally catching up with reading other blogs and saw this one about coming to NYC :) I've seen two other greys in my neighborhood, but not a whole lot. I do belong to a meetup group, though, and we occasionally have gatherings with our greys - you could definitely get your grey fix then :)
